Sailing

Samantha and Sarah arrived around noon, and after helping me with a few things like getting the rudder seal installed we went sailing.

Sarah tried to smash a bottle of bubbly wine on the bow, but it just dented the boat :-).

We sailed off the dock under main, noodled around in the turning basin waiting for the bridge to open, then out to the lake. Nice day, west wind around 10 knots.

We put up the older main. Looks fine, think that’ll be the one I use this summer.

On the lake we reached north for a while, turned around and sailed back into the river and to the dock. Didn’t put up any headsails.

Boat sails very well. Lots of stability, and no fuss going through the water.

Tomorrow we’ll do more.
